Regular price $24.00 $24.00 Sale

This work presents a new method of estimating the cost of a military person-year that focuses on the actual cost of the retirement benefits that the federal government must provide to military personal, where previously available measures focused only on annual retirement-fund accrual costs. A major implication of this alternative calculus is that truly effective force management requires an increased focus on the cost of personnel.
